A notice released today by the Town of Bruce Mines states that Trunk Road is closed from Jeffery Road to Highway 638 until further notice.
The weather-related closure is due to excessive rainfall in the region, a representative told SooToday.
Motorists are urged to avoid the area and follow Jeffery Road to Cloudslee Road to detour around the closure.
Environment Canada reports that some areas east of Sault Ste. Marie recieved more than 50 mm of rain overnight.
